Ever since I found out that baby products on the shelves aren’t as safe as I would like, I’ve made an effort to buy only organic products for my family’s skin. Especially for my babies. It seems like there’s always something extra a baby needs, whether it’s diaper rash cream, baby oil, or moisturizer. These products are put on almost daily, so knowing what the ingredients are is very important to me!
miniOrganics is a company that is dedicated to providing safe products for baby and new and pregnant mommies. They have formulated their products, made in Australia, to be chemical-free and certified organic. They carry everything from baby wash to body oil (for mom) and include ingredients (organic of course) like Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Cocoa Butter, and much more. You can see what specific ingredients are in which product here.
Ever since I gave birth to my little boy (less than a month ago), I’ve used miniOrganics and have not been disappointed in the least! I received the Infant Moisturizer, Soothing Nipple Balm, and Nappy (Diaper) Balm for review and everything has been used every day.
Nappy Balm: This diaper rash balm has the best ingredients. It contains olive oil, shea butter, coconut oil, evening primrose oil (good for inflammation), cocoa butter, lavender oil, and chamomile oil, all terrific ingredients for soothing inflamed little bottoms and making them super soft. I’ve been using this to prevent diaper rash on my newborn but also used it on a rash that was starting to develop on my 2 1/2-year-old daughter. She had no complaints as it went on and the next morning the rash was completely gone! I’m really happy with this product and would definitely buy it again. I love love LOVE the ingredients! You can also use this on chapped lips. The miniOrganics Nappy Balm comes in a 1.8 oz container and retails for $32.95.
Infant Moisturizer: After I gave my newborn his first bath, he developed a bit of dry skin on his legs and arms, so I immediately got out the miniOrganics Infant Moisturizer and slathered it on. It works really well and fast, too! After one application the dry flaking skin was completely moisturized – I didn’t even need to put on multiple applications throughout the day. More wonderful ingredients: Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, and Lavender Oil are a few. This product also comes in a 1.8 oz container and retails for $26.00.
Nipple Balm: This one is for me, of course. I wanted to try something different from the Lanolin that is so widely used. I looked up what exactly Lanolin IS and I was a little grossed out by that. Um, my baby is getting that in his mouth when he nurses! I know they say it’s fine but it still bothers me. So I was thrilled to be able to try a natural organic nipple balm with ingredients that don’t include something that comes off an animal. This balm is not greasy at all – actually it’s thick and soothing and kind of reminds me of the Lanolin except it isn’t smelly or sticky at all. It has the same coverage, though, and soothing properties. I’ve been using it regularly and it has definitely done the job – if you’re looking for an organic alternative to Lanolin I really recommend this product! There is a lot in the little jar, too, so I don’t think I’ll be going through it too fast. This Soothing Nipple Balm comes in a 0.5 oz jar and retails for $29.00.
I couldn’t be happier with my experience with miniOrganics and recommend their products highly! If you’re pregnant or are a new mommy you should definitely head over to their site and see what they have for you and your little one. :)
